Curtain Drawn on 2020 Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival

It is with regret that the Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival Committee has decided to cancel the 2020 Festival – slated to be held from May 14 to 17 – due to the unprecented situation of COVID-19.

The Committee would like to thank the strong local community and business support given in recent months leading up to the Festival through their commitment to event creation, monetary, in-kind and ‘Friends of the Festival’ sponsorship. The Committee also acknowledges the unwavering support of Coonawarra wineries-both with monetary donations and in wine, venues, event creation and volunteer hours – over this, and previous years.

The Festival started in its embryonic stages almost 29 years ago, and today has grown to become one of regional Australia’s leading arts events. The Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival ensures the arts thrive in ourvibrant community for children, adults, families, the elderly and local organisations.

The Committee is committed to working toward the 2021 Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival.
